No jobs on a debt planet, right?


Dear Kevin,

Climate Change is a threat to all of us! Extreme weather events are already destroying jobs and livelihoods and, if we don’t act now, temperature
increases will lead to the loss of 72 million jobs [1].With workers on
the frontline of climate action, we can begin to turn this around by
asking our bosses if they have a plan to reduce emissions. So why not start a conversation with your employer about how they are climate-proofing
their operations and climate-proofing your job.

On June 26, join the Global Day of Workplace Action to Climate-Proof Our Work –  #cPOWBold climate actions can generate more than 65
million jobs and avoid more than 700,000 premature deaths from air
pollution [2].

The ITUC is working for a ‘Just Transition’ to secure the future and livelihoods of workers and their communities in the transition to a low-carbon economy. Workers and their unions can work with employers to climate-proof their business, and put Just Transition measures at their heart of their plans.All workers have a right to know how their employers are planning to reduce emissions and have a sustainable future for the business. 


Sign up for the Global Day of Workplace Action on 26 June and ask your boss for their climate plan!There are no jobs on a dead planet, but together we can build good jobs on a living planet.Take Action Now!


In solidarity,Sharan Burrow P.S.
